Lesson 11: Journal Assignment ENH

For this journal response you will compare and/contrast general topics related to two authors. Your journal response will focus upon the two OTHER authors on which you did NOT choose for your second literary analysis essay.

For example, if you chose to complete your second literary analysis on “The Tell Tale Heart” by Poe, then your journal assignment here will focus on Hawthorne and Melville.
